Most Influential Person

  • Mark says Crystal is the most influential person in his life.

Effect on Emotions

  • Crystal says mindfulness has affected her emotions tremendously. It helps me realize that whatever is going on outside of me that's causing me to feel these things can always be questioned and it's not necessarily the truth.
  • If I go inside and be still with myself, then I can find the truth.  

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Mark's thoughts on breathing: Breathing is everything because breathing brings you back to center.
  • I wrote a forward to a book called Three Deep Breaths, by Thomas Crum. Three breaths are what you need to take before you go into meditation, I believe. It relaxes you, it centers you, and you get in touch with your soul, the essence of who you are, the god in you, that's what I believe.

Bullying Story

When I was in 8th grade I got a ride to school with the minister in this purple car. It was embarrassing to go to eighth grade in a purple car. We arrived at school and I had grown so tall, so fast. I was the tallest kid in class at 6′ 4″ and 13 years old. I was gangly and uncoordinated. I wrote to the radio station, WLS in Chicago. Wrote to the Great Pumpkin, who would answer every kid's question. My question to him was, Dear Great Pumpkin, my name is Mark Victor Hansen, I go to Webster Junior High School, I'm in Eighth grade, I'm 6′ 4″ and too tall for my class and I'm uncoordinated. So we're in the car with 6 kids and this question comes over the radio. He says, I'm going to tell you what to do today, Mark. “Cut off your head and carry it to school in a paper bag.” Every kid kept asking me, where's my bag.
